Where's the best place to shoot craps in Vegas AND the best way to get CASH. Many years ago, when I was last in Vegas, it was expensive to get cash advances from Credit/Debit card. Any cheaper ways to get cash? I'm coming in from New York this weekend. Thank you.

Where do you bank? There's a high overlap between banks with branches in NY and banks with branches in Las Vegas. You could just go to the counter of a Vegas branch. BofA would be my preference for this, but Wells Fargo and Chase also work.

Too late for this trip, but you could also apply for a line of credit at your favorite casino(s). No fees (unless you're late paying it back, of course), zero interest loan.

As rdw said, the easiest, cheapest thing to do is just go to a bank when you get into town.

Where is the closest Chase to the strip? Without a car, you are probably looking at $20-25 in cab fare, so it certainly isn't the cheapest option.

East Sahara, West Sahara, East Flamingo. Reasonable walk, imo.

I'd go to the one at Tropicana & Jones. I think there's a bus stop there in front of the Smiths. Uber fare is maybe $8 ($16 round trip)? it's also borderline walkable - little under 2 miles west of the strip.

There's also the downtown branch on Bonneville at LVB. That's an easy walk from Fremont Street.

Edit: but, like I said, my preference would be to use BofA for this - spring mountain & Wynn rd and Trop & Decatur are easy to get to.

There are 38 branches of Chase (about 6 are ATM only) in Las Vegas (including the strip, technically not in the city). Closest to the Strip appear to be 6-8 blocks east, on Flamingo or Tropicana. They're in strip malls in a lot of cases, just a small storefront teller.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Nobody applied Boolean criteria in their answers! :D

(I just like saying Boolean. Boolean, Boolean, Boolean!)

Main Street Station has 20x odds, a $5 min bet/$1,000 max bet, and pays triple on box cars, based on the Wizard's craps survey—AND it's a 13-minute walk (0.6 miles) to a Citibank ATM!

Boolean!
